Selcom srl – Multiaxial Technology, the leading manufacturer in Italy of engineered textile reinforcements for the advanced composites industry by using the Non-Crimp Fabrics (NCFs) technology, has recently installed a powder binder coating facility as well as a multilayers laminating line.
The entire range of Selcom NCFs made of carbon, glass, aramid, basalt and other fibers can be coated on one or both sides of the reinforcement with a polymer binder up to a maximum width of 2540 mm.
This specific technology is mainly used to stabilize the fibers to prevent them from deformation during handling and cutting and employed in various applications (e.g. preforms in RTM process).
Besides, the system also allows multiple materials to be bonded together (e.g. fabrics to be coupled with other materials like non-woven veils/felts etc.) using also a thermoplastic adhesive.
The versatility of the system with the possibility to use a wide range of polymers having different melting temperatures, viscosities and compatibilities with most of the matrix resins (in particular with epoxy resins) are the reasons why this technology was selected over other systems.
Moreover, the company is also very attentive to issues related to environmental protection. As a matter of fact, it recycles 99% of the processing scraps and 70% of its energy requirement is met by renewable sources.
Selcom is always looking for best textile solutions to gain customer’s satisfaction with innovation and, in long term, contributing to reduce CO2 emissions coupled with the possibility of production costs lowering.
One of the latest projects Selcom has collaborated in by supplying special carbon fibre reinforcements for one of the most complex architectural structure is the Museum of the Future, a museum for science, technology and innovation, recently built in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates.
Selcom is a leader in the development and manufacturing of textile reinforcements for Civil Engineering. In particular, the company serves this specific sector with glass/carbon/basalt and hybrid unidirectional, biaxial and multiaxial fabrics creating with the support of its partners a kind of “anti seismic wallpaper”.
Selcom unidirectional Woven tapes in Carbon Fiber have a single orientation 0º and are produced with conventional technology warp-weft. They are used in civil engineering.
Do you know that multiaxial fabrics are born for the aerospace and aeronautical sectors to provide the best mechanical performance to the part manufactured with composite materials?
A new range of carbon biaxial and triaxial fabrics made with IM modulus like T800, MR60, MR70 is born. We suggest it for the production of chassis and aerodynamic parts of supercars.
Dear clients, suppliers and partners.
We are sorry to inform you that, due to the recent spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in Italy, JEC World 2020 in Paris has been postponed in May 2020.
We will wait for you on 12-14 May.
